My Research Activities

Humans and other animals stand out from the rest of nature because they have a subjective perspective on the world (e.g., they perceive, desire, and believe things about the world), and the capacity to act on the basis of their perceptions, beliefs, and desires. My work focuses on trying to understand these unique capacities. It overlaps the traditional philosophical areas of philosophy of mind, philosophy of action, and epistemology. I also have a strong interest in the history of philosophical work in these areas, especially in Immanuel Kant and in early figures in Analytic philosophy, such as Gotlob Frege, G.E. Moore, Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein.
